DINGLE ADDS TUNES TO NAME ROW
The Kerry's Eye  (Dingle in the News)

As the final touches to the proposed plebiscite on determining the
official town name of Dingle are put in place, Coiste Dingle-Daingean
Uí Chúis have rallied their troops by composing a song to boost
morale.

Dingle-Daingean Uí Chúis Abú was composed by local traditional group,
Slaudeen, who have reformed after 20 years to lend their support, and
people from all over Dingle contributed ideas.

Renowned musician Fergus O'Flathearta, proprietor of O'Flaherty's Bar,
Bridge Street, a long-time Mecca for traditional musical enthusiasts,
sees the song as a way to way to vocalise the sentiments of the entire
town against the Governments alteration of the official town name from
Dingle to An Daingean last year.

"Dingle is a place which has always been associated with music and
culture, what better way to fight this than with the strongest tool we
have," said Fergus.

"Every struggle had its poets and bards and the impact of their work
can never be underestimated, hopefully the people of Kerry and indeed
the world will take it to their hearts and help us get our name back"
